Hey Guys,
I’m a new player, maining Shadow Priest, I had quite an unpleasant encounter,
Doing Dungeons, I sign for DPS, I was never asked or expected to do Mass Dispel, as my cooldowns are quite long [45 seconds] I assumed.
until this guy, screaming and cursing at me the whole dungeon to dispel.
I did try but having never done so, with cool downs of 45 seconds, not quite successfully :sweat_smile:
is it expected of SPriest to do this job, even tho I’d signed up for DPS? does it justify calling me retarded nonstop?

Hey Mythicalish,

To answer your query, I would not say that it is expected, from your class/spec specifically to dispel bad stuff, but at the same time, I personally try to use various abilities to make the life of the other people in my group easier. Like Papudeath mentioned above, with demanding content like progression raiding in Mythic raids or very high Mythic+ dungeons, it would be best if you use everything in your arsenal.

It is definitely not accepted to have someone name calling you and harassing you, and I would suggest that if this happens again to report them, by using the appropriate function - right-click their name and select the option that suits best.

Additionally I had to slightly edit your post by removing the name of the offender. Naming and shaming is not allowed in our forums, so please avoid doing so in the future.
